Partnership Facilitates Smart Flush Valves and Faucets


Toto's EcoPower flush valves and faucets can be monitored with GP PRO's KOLO Smart Monitoring System. The KOLO Smart Monitoring System delivers reliable, customizable and secure monitoring and analysis of connected restroom fixtures to a dashboard that facility managers monitor via tablet or computer. The system can track the number of toilet and faucet activations and their water consumption, fixture over-utilization and operational abnormalities, and supply levels, among other features. EcoPower faucets and flush valves create their own electricity every time water spins their small internal turbine (no need for hardwiring to a building’s electrical system or for routine disposable battery replacement, which is costly and toxic to the environment). Because TOTO’s EcoPower products generate their own energy, they continue to operate without interruption if the building loses its electricity. If the building’s internet service goes out, they continue to collect data on their usage to be transmitted when the internet connection is restored. Extremely water efficient, TOTO’s EcoPower faucets flow at 0.09 gallons per 10-second cycle, which is 64 percent below the 0.25 gallons per-cycle baseline set by the federal government for high-efficiency faucets. Consumers will enjoy their quick, effective rinse. TOTO's high-efficiency 1.0 or 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf) commercial toilets and high-efficiency 0.5 or 0.125 gpf urinals have been rigorously tested to ensure high-performance and maximum water efficiency when paired with its EcoPower flush valves. TOTO products’ clean, simple design lines enhance the attractiveness of a facility’s connected restrooms.
